Hamilton High School senior Brittany Paa learned recently that her poem, “Think,” will be published in a national journal. After writing the poem, Paa was encouraged by Hamilton communication arts teacher Kristi Stuesser to start the process of getting her work published. Her first attempt at being published was successful as Creative Communication accepted her poem to be published in the upcoming book, “A Celebration of Poets.”
